Primus and Gogol Bordello will weird you out at the Uptown tonight

Primus‘ claim to fame — other than giving South Park its theme — remains its status as the funkiest freak-bass rock band of the ’90s. Like the other ’90s alt rockers, the band has seen its mainstream fortunes dwindle. But bass noodler Les Claypool still leads Primus with a metal lifer’s absurdly unclouded verve. Claypool and his band are stopping here on their first headlining tour in four years, in advance of a new album — the first since 1999 — due out next year. Gogol Bordello, the New York Gypsy punk band, fills the opening slot with the high-octane, accordion-ripping stomps that have blown many a headliner off the stage. Expect spit, sweat and molasses-thick Ukrainian accents to accompany more than a few ridiculous theatrics. (After all, lead singer Eugene Hütz once shared a stage with Madonna.)

Check out what you’re in for tonight after the jump.
